Mexico is a country awash with vibrant colours, from the papier mâché skeletons and sugar skulls of the famous Day of the Dead celebrations to garish souvenir sombreros and juicy prickly pears just begging to be tasted. You’ll be met with world-class beachfront resorts, magnificent jungles and that famous national tipple, tequila. Indulge in luxurious spa treatments, sip cocktails under a thatched palapa on a secluded beach, or take the road of exploration to mystical Mayan sites.
Our stylish hotels are located on the Caribbean coast of the beautiful Riviera Maya on the Yucatán Peninsula, home to some of the most stunning beaches and richest coral beds in Mexico. The sand is so fine and soft that you would be forgiven for not straying too far from your sun lounger, but it’s worth it for the fantastic windsurfing, sailing, snorkelling and diving on offer. The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef is the second biggest in the world, where stripy sergeant majors, parrot fish and colourful sea anemones bring hours of fascinating exploration.
You can also swim in underground cenotes and sail on turquoise waters to the offshore islands of Isla Mujeres and Cozumel. Golfers will be in seventh heaven on courses designed by the likes of Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman, and the dining options on the Riviera Maya are endless.
While many come to Mexico simply for its stunning shores and balmy days, the ruins of the ancient Mayan civilisation are also a fascinating draw. As the sun beats down on Chichén Itzá, have a bottle of water on hand to tour the central pyramid and clap your hands at the base to hear the resounding echo of the legendary Quetzal call in return. Climb to the top of Nohoch Mul, visit the tropical jungle ruins of Tulum or tour the pre-Columbian city of Uxmal for a deeper look into Mayan culture.
